How to Have a Good Day Tip #1: How to Handle Bad News/Emails


  • “Reading just one negative email could lead you to report having a bad day hours later”
  • “Even if you have one good and one bad [email], the bad always seem more powerful,”
  • “The same goes with reading stressful or negative news”


  • Minimize the time spent on reading news. 
  • Focus on the uplifting stories.  Skip the bad ones by reading headlines only and not reading the details.
  • Take two minutes to draft a positive email to someone in your social support network.  For example, thank a friend/family member or praise a colleague on their recent work.
